Dentist in the San Jose area offers an implant solution for a missing tooth
A missing tooth can have a dramatic impact on the smile. This is why patients who visit Dr. Munira Lokhandwala in the San Jose area interested in replacing one or more teeth may be urged to consider the benefits of placing a dental implant.
Dental implants are a common solution for restoring the smile. They are often chosen over alternatives such as partial dentures and dental bridges because they have many benefits over the others. Patients who are seeking a permanent way to replace their missing teeth will find dental implants to be the best option out there. Dental implants are:
- Easy to care for
- Last a lifetime
- Just like natural teeth!
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the team at StarBrite Dental encourage patients to learn about the ways in which dental implants can be used. They can replace one or more teeth. They are placed into the jawbone as a titanium post and can be restored in many different ways. A dental crown can be placed over the abutment to replace a single tooth, a bridge can be used for replacing several teeth, or patients can use their full dentures and have them snap into place over their implants for stability and strength.
Dental implants do require patients to have sufficient bone structure. This is necessary to ensure placement is successful. If patients do not have enough jawbone, it can keep the dental implant from stimulating the process of osseointegration for stability. Patients who do not qualify for dental implants may consider alternative options or speak to a professional about bone grafting.
Patients in and around the area of San Jose are welcome to book an appointment with Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental to discuss the possibilities of repairing the smile with dental implants.
